Three of four Brave Girls test positive for Covid-19
Three of the four Brave Girls have tested positive for Covid-19, Brave Entertainment said in a statement on Saturday.
"Minyoung has been vaccinated twice, but she tested positive in a self-test," the agency said. "She immediately took a PCR test, which confirmed that she had contracted the virus."
Following Minyoung's positive test, the other members of Brave Girls took rapid antigen tests, and they confirmed that Yujeong and Eunji had been infected as well.
Yuna's test was negative.
"The members have halted all activities and will focus on recovering their health," Brave Entertainment said. It added that Minyoung is currently receiving at-home treatment, while Yujeong and Eunji are in quarantine awaiting instructions from the national health authorities.
Brave Girls will still be releasing a new EP Monday as planned. The group's showcase, slated for the same day, has been postponed to March 23. A showcase is a promotional event where K-pop artists perform their new song and answer questions from the press.
"Thank You" will be the group's sixth EP. It has five songs including title track "Thank You." The song is about group's gratitude toward its fans for their support over the years.
Brave Girls debuted in 2011, and rose to popularity when "Rollin'" went viral in 2021, four years after its release. The group currently has four members: Minyoung, Yujeong, Eunji and Yuna. "Thank You" will be the group's first release in about seven months following "After 'We Ride'" (2021), a repackaging of its hit.
